Sean Deveney writes in The Sporting News: Such is the twisted logic of an expected dynasty that anything short of utter annihilation of opponents somehow feels flat. Make no mistake; that’s what the Spurs are: an expected dynasty. San Antonio took the NBA title last season with an impressive playoff run that revealed the Spurs to be as capable of fast-breaking with the Suns and Nuggets as slugging it out…

Last April, with four of their top eight players injured, having just lost to the Mavericks in an embarrassing blowout and then come back to win a double-overtime game in L.A. against the Clippers the night before, the Spurs came to Oakland to play the Warriors. A certain group of Spurs fans made the trip to Oakland Coliseum to support their Spurs – even though with the Spurs exhausted from…

Sure the Spurs are playing great ball right now. In fact, at 36-10, they’re off to the best start in franchise history and the Rodeo Road Trip is off to a good start. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are both having All-Star seasons and Manu Ginobili is playing again, and playing well. But if I know anything about this organization, there will be a trade. Why? Tim Duncan and Manu…

Say it ain’t so, Steve! After having the Spurs ranked second behind the Pistons since shortly after the season started, former Spur Steve Kerr now ranks the Spurs second behind the Dallas Mavericks. In case anyone has forgotten, the Mavs beat both the Spurs and Pistons earlier this season. These guys are the real deal, and it has a lot to do with another former Spur.

Many have speculated that Kobe Bryant may be the “second coming” of Michael Jordan: an unguardable scorer with the talent and sheer will to carry his team to championships. While this theory does have its merits, its proponents underestimate Kobe’s greatness. I would like to propose a completely different theory that I think offers a much more plausible explanation for the Kobe Phenomenon: Kobe Bryant is the Second Coming of…

I have a great deal of admiration for Kobe’s abilities, and despite Funk’s thoughts to the contrary, scoring 81 points in the NBA, against the Craptors or anyone else, with or without overtimes, is a remarkable feat. (Funk, have you forgotten that Kobe’s season low this season was also against the Craptors, scoring just 11 points in a 102-91 win in Toronto on Dec. 7?) Then again, whether scoring 81…

…where “not in my no-no place!” definitely means “yes.” True, forcibly sodomizing a much smaller, teenaged girl isn’t much of a challenge, but then again, neither is going off on the Craptors (they lost to Yaniv Green and his Israeli team) . For a guy whose championships are over, that had 2 titles faked and given to him (WCF VS. Portland? Sacto? Huge leads miraculously dispappearing in the most statistically…

You’re sitting and watching, and it’s like a miracle unfolding in front of your eyes and you can’t accept it. Somehow, the brain won’t work. The easiest way to look at it is everybody remembers every 50-point game they ever saw. He had 55 in the second half.–Lakers owner Jerry Buss Don’t get me wrong. We here at SpursDynasty hate Kobe Bryant. That being said, Kobe did something truly unimaginable…

CURSE OF THE NEAR-SPURHow many times have we seen a major free agent consider the San Antonio Spurs, then not make the compromises they need to get on the team? Or just blow it badly as a team member? Then their career plummets. How many times? Let’s count: Jason Kidd – forget the title, and Vince Carter saved that franchise from permanently losing postseason aspirations, at least as long as…

The results are in. Which posts were the most popular among Spurs Dynasty readers in 2005? Surprisingly, three of the the top four posts had little to do with the San Antonio Spurs. One thing they all do have in common, though, is the same author: Bramlet Abercrombie, formerly known as the Notorious CBC. #4: Don’t sweat these preseason losses: “Unlike most teams, the Spurs don’t need confidence-building wins against…
